IRS notices are letters sent to inform taxpayers of important tax information. Each one is different, but we can explain what the CP60 is about.
Understanding your CP60 notice
The IRS made a mistake and wrongly applied someone else’s payment to your account.
Type of Notice
Why you received the CP60 notice
You received a CP60 notice because the IRS mistakenly applied a payment to your account and by removing it, you most likely owe the IRS money.
Likely next steps
As always, carefully read the notice, which will outline the date and amount of the payment that the IRS mistakenly credited to your account. In addition, the notice will let you know what you still owe the IRS, and when that payment is due. If you cannot afford to pay the full amount, the IRS recommends you pay as much as you can and then explore payment options, like a payment plan.
You can also contact a tax professional to learn more about your options.
CP60 Notice deadline
Your notice will provide a due date for your payment.
If you miss the deadline
If you do not pay by the deadline or make other arrangements, you might be subject to penalties and interest.
